You cant forget to connect your remote wire from your deck to the amp, its usually some shade of blue. if its not labeled with some sort of tag or sticker, you can look at a wiring guide that either came with your deck, or on in pdf form online. just buy any kind of wire long enough to reach your amp from your deck. the wire acts as a signal for the amp to start doing its job.

Make sure sound signal is coming in the input ports, to test if amp's got reception use a wire and holding it with bare hands touch the input plugs " the middle" it should make a sound like BrRbRBR

Subs Won't work when wired


Hi,

Based on your post/description, pls try:
1. running the amp's power without the capacitor;
2. manually trigger the amp with the head unit off. Run it an determine if the backfiring still will occur (even with the head unit off);
3. temporarily interchange the left/right wiring;
4. temporarily interchange the + and - speaker wires;
5. run the amp normally trioggered by the headunit but remove the RCA connectors towards the amp.

If your concern has not been corrected or diagnosed which is at fault (wiring, amp, source) after completion of the above procedures, the amp may require an internal look and see.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.

I have a Lanzar Vibe 235 amp. the green power light is not coming on, but the red "protect" light is. how do i solve this problem??


Disconnect all speaker connections and rca cables. Leave power, ground and remote wires intact. Try turning on again. If you still have a protection light your amp is faulty. Hopefully you have warranty. Time to purchase an old school Lanzar Opti Drive. Any of them. The 50 will kill some 12" subs .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. lanzar-vibe-235-amp-green-power-shonxoarcym4awy4zl1imx4o-2-0.jpg Lanzar

I have a lanzar mxa232 there is a L & R low. I do not have that on my head unit. How do I tie them in?


You would need a Line Output Converter (LOC) to convert the speaker level of the head unit to preamp level.

The amp also has speaker level inputs but the LOC will probably produce better results.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Annoying thump from two 15" kicker comps powered by a lanzar vibe 266 amp


It sounds like it may be oscillating. This can be caused by a broken ground in the signal line. You need to check the RCA shield on the head unit.You'll need an ohm meter. The following page has more details. If the head unit isn't damaged, the shield ground could be open in the amplifier.

Lanzar vibe 230 400 watts amp


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter lead on the ground terminal of the amp and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red lead alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.
